Standard memory is 20 Mpts/ch (on all four channels, doubled when channels are bandwidth interleaved) with memory options of 32, 64, 128, 256 and 512 Mpts/ch. Maximum analysis memory of 512 Mpts/ch (36 GHz) and 1024 Mpts/ch (60 GHz) is also an industry first, combining long acquisition captures with LeCroy's strong heritage of long memory analysis capability and advanced eye diagram/jitter analysis with the world's fastest and highest bandwidth density oscilloscopes.
The same software and hardware options, accessories, and probes available with previous generations of LabMaster are also available with the LabMaster 10 Zi.
The application space
LeCroy's LabMaster 10 Zi provides four channels of silicon-based 36 GHz bandwidth in a single acquisition module at an attractive price point of $283,150 — twice the channels for the same price of competitive 32 or 33 GHz oscilloscopes. 36 GHz bandwidth provides sub 10ps rise time (20-80%) measurement capability, near 100 fs(rms) jitter noise floor, capture of the fifth harmonic of 14.4 Gb/s serial data signals, and low noise performance. Four channels at maximum bandwidth provides the ability to debug crosstalk problems among multiple serial data lanes or from power distribution networks to a single serial data lane, or the ability to acquire both clock and data differential signals for serial data signals such as Quick Path Interconnect (QPI). At this price point, the silicon-based 36 GHz LabMaster 10 Zi is likely to become the new laboratory standard for high-speed SERDES measurements, replacing four-channel 20 GHz oscilloscopes in this application.
